Optomechanical tests of a Schrödinger-Newton equation for gravitational quantum mechanics

Gan, C. C.; Savage, C. M.; Scully, S. Z.


We show that optomechanical systems can test the Schrödinger-Newton equation of gravitational quantum mechanics due to Yang et al. Phys. Rev. Lett. 110, 170401 (2013). This equation is motivated by semiclassical gravity, a widely used theory of interacting gravitational and quantum fields. From the many-body Schrödinger-Newton equation follows an approximate equation for the center-of-mass dynamics of macroscopic objects. This predicts a distinctive double-peaked signature in the output...[Show more]
